Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

This article is just giving us statistics regarding brain tumors. However those of you who have read the research widely will know that any link to emf exposure from mobile phones is a controversial issue that is pretty much played down by the industries. It might make a dent in profits. Apple does tell us in their (very) fine print to hold our phones 5/8 inch from our bodies. Dr Mercola also writes of heavy mobile phone use quadrupling our risk of brain cancer. Watch the following 2 minute clip on topic by a medical doctor. Isn’t it worth researching? There’s enough evidence of risk to do so. And there are ways to protect yourself without throwing away your phone. I first pricked my ears up at this topic when I read a conversation saying brain surgeons could tell what side of your head you held your phone. Check out our EMF pages and particularly the wi-cancer website, an excellent resource.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

American Brain Tumor Association funds first comprehensive study of 15-39 year-old population

AMERICAN BRAIN TUMOR ASSOCIATION

Chicago, Ill., Feb. 24, 2016 – A new report published in the journal Neuro-Oncology and funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) finds that malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in adolescents and young adults aged 15-39 and the most common cancer occurring among 15-19 year olds.

The 50-page report, which utilized data from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) from 2008-2012, is the first in-depth statistical analysis of brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adolescents and young adults (AYA). Statistics are provided on tumor type, tumor location and age group (15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34 and 35-39) for both malignant and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors.

“When analyzing data in 5-year age increments, researchers discovered that the adolescent and young adult population is not one group but rather several distinct groups that are impacted by very different tumor types as they move into adulthood,” said Elizabeth Wilson, president and CEO of the American Brain Tumor Association.

“For these individuals — who are finishing school, pursuing their careers and starting and raising young families — a brain tumor diagnosis is especially cruel and disruptive,” added Wilson. “This report enables us for the first time to zero-in on the types of tumors occurring at key intervals over a 25-year time span to help guide critical research investments and strategies for living with a brain tumor that reflect the patient’s unique needs.”

Signs to Look For

Indirect Symptoms

Lung cancer patients remember noticing this as one of their first symptoms but didn’t initially connect it to cancer.

2. Frequent fevers or infections

Frequently a sign of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in bone marrow. It causes the marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells that hinder your body’s infection-fighting abilities.
